I booked in for a late lunch with a friend and we both chose the set menu. It was of wonderful quality, artisitic and really delicious, using the freshest ingredients, and very good value. Sometimes set menus make one feel there was a compromise, but we felt we had top menu choices. The staff were attentive, and informed and didn't hurry us on. It was a wonderful experience and I will be recommending the restaurant to everyone! Thankyou!

I dined on a quiet Saturday lunchtime. I chose the prix fixe menu which met my tastes well. Staff were friendly, informed and informative without that over-the-top obsequiousness that I find so false. Food was excellent and good value in my opinion. Interior decor wasn't to my personal taste, but then I rejoice in the fact that the world isn't full of people like me. Oh, great cocktails too.

Great place, loved the relaxed but buzzy atmosphere and the food was excellent. Service top class too.
The fixed price menu was fantastic value, the a la carte choices more expensive but overall worth it. A good and fairly priced wine list too. In one visit it has become a favourite already and can't wait to go back.

We were in a rush because of transport delays...service a bit slow to start but when we explained picked up really well.

It’s not cheap but the food was delicious...the wine was pretty good, too!

Very good set lunch and service.
Amenities excellent.
We were sitting under two loudspeakers mounted in the ceiling. Noise level of music too high.
Loudspeakers appear to serve the entire restaurant.
The bill included a 1 pound voucher for charity although it needed agreement for the donation it showed up automatically on the invoice whch we paid. Not good!

Exceptional food. In a beautiful space. This is a relatively small restaurant - not too quiet, not too noisy. Elegant but not stuffy. One of the best in London.

Service was slow last night - which is unusual. My friend’s Halibut has to be sent back twice as it was very over cooked. Rest of the food was OK but not remarkable. Crab starter seemed to lack crab! Not a great experience.

Really delicious food (had a la Carte started and main). Beautifully presented plates. Superbly attentive and very thoughtful service (accommodating the two guests with allergies). Relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Great quiet side street location too.

Great atmosphere in this busy but small restaurant which offers high quality food with unusual menu choices. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them.

Lovely and small and nicely decorated. Quite cosy with good food and nice ambience.
Cocktail menu is small but they will make you something that isn’t on the menu if you ask them to.
There was some broken glass on our table and on my seat from a previous diner but they were very apologetic for it.
Overall it was a lovely evening and would go back.

Our first visit to No 5 Social. We had the set lunch menu which was amazing value.
Excellent food, nicely presented. Very friendly and efficient staff.
Would certainly go back in the evening and have the à la carte.

We surpriused how much I enjoyed evening.

Didn’t get there until after 9pm.

Food, service and atmosphere really excellent. I like the classy effect. really good modern but very accessible food and excellent professional but nicely informal service and experience.

The fish we ate was really tasty, we particularly enjoyed the little unexpected treats. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was most relaxing. We would definitely recommend it to our friends!

Jason Atherton is a god to me. So I criticise with trepidation. But I did not enjoy this dinner. The fact that we had to sit at a very loud music bar for 15 minutes to get our table probably didn’t help. But we found the food was too contrived. Too much decoration; not enough substance. But I am old fashioned. So please aim off.

Smashing. What a delight. Everything was sublime, and we loved the little warm fresh cakes at the end. I loved this place in its old guise as the Little Social and was a bit sceptical of the re-do, and the new name. But the cooking was superb, and the prix fixe lunch menu a bargain. I am already looking for a chance to go again...

I love what used to be little social, and the food was very tasty indeed, but the portions were remarkably small, but the prices have stated hi (and we didn’t even have any wine). Will still come, this really meant to be constructive feedback.

good food, well presented plates and 3 courses are more than enough to have on one evening. cosy atmosphere. well educated staff, I would only recommend to serve the g&t seperately and not already serve together in the glass
